John Kerry admits possibility of arms supplies to Syrian opposition

US Secretary of State John Kerry has admitted the possibility of arms supplies to the moderate forces of Syria’s opposition.

There is no doubt that arms supplies to moderate opposition in Syria must be ensured, John Kerry said in Riyadh, adding that there was a threat that these arms would make their way into the extremists’ hands.

In Riyadh Kerry held talks with Saudi Foreign Minister Prince Saud al-Faisal. Meanwhile, at the meeting of the Friends of Syria Group in Rome last week Kerry said that Syria’s opposition members would receive food, medicine and means of communication, not arms, from the USA.
